Back in 2012 when I started this blog one of my first post was on how to make money as an MC. The info in the article was straight from my own experiences as an underground MC/Promoter. As the landscape continues to change I feel its time we revisit this topic and add a little more flair and new strategies!!!!
HOW TO MAKE MONEY AS AN MC: “PUBLISHING!”
“DIGITAL PERFORMING RIGHTS”
Digital Performance Right (DPR) is the right of the sound recording copyright owner to perform or cause his/her sound recording to be performed via digital transmission. DPR royalties are paid to record labels and performers for the performance of their sound records via digital transmissions, i.e. satellite TV and digital cable, non-interactive websites (including re-transmissions of terrestrial radio), interactive webcasting services, and satellite radio. So Music posted on YouTube, Vevo, spotify etc.; can generate royalties. Info from http://www.mymusicroyalties.com
